careers for english majors

The web is a great resource for locating career information, but you should not limit your career exploration activities to web resources, which leave out important components like networking, counseling, and interactive discussion, and which tend to treat some subjects in brief that are better dealt with in a more comprehensive format. Be sure to check out the many UW resources that are offered to undergraduate students.
